The 'Great Temple of Solomon' at Stirling Castle

Ian Campbell, A MacKechnie

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A Royal Chapel was built in 1594 at Stirling Castle for the baptism of Prince Henry, first-born son and heir to James VI, King of Scotland. "It can claim to be the earliest Renaissance church in Britain, with its main entrance framed by a triumphal arch, flanked by Italianate windows. However, even more significant is the evidence that the chapel was deliberately modelled on the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem."
